This Business of Children brings it all home. Author Chloe JonPaul has done it again – this time with a novel that is not to be missed! Endorsements from educational leaders including the president of the California Federation of Teachers applaud her ability to portray the teaching profession in a style that is engrossing and authentic. As Bill Page, author of At-Risk Students: Feeling Their Pain; Understanding Their Plight; and Accepting Their Defensive Ploys notes:
In the novel, This Business of Children, the author has done what few non-fictional and biographical educational writers and have been able to do: Chloe has captured a glimpse of teachers, teaching, and their private lives complete with the roles, routines, and rituals of every day struggles, all the while depicting the anguish of unforgettable abused, forlorn kids. All of the book’s character’s battle and fail in their quest to salvage the lives of the kids lost in the bureaucratic maze of antiquated school policies.
